Model abstract 7028-6C4

The 7028 IBM eServer pSeries 630 Model 6C4 is a Rack-mount Server. The Model 6C4 provides the power, capacity, and expandability required for e-business computing. It offers 64-bit scalability via the 64-bit POWER4 or POWER4+ processor packaged as 1-way and 2-way cards. With its two-processor positions, the Model 6C4 can be configured into 1-, 2-or 4-way configurations. The processor cards operate at 1.0 GHz with 32 MB of L3 cache per processor card, or 1.2 and 1.45 GHz with 8 MB of L3 cache per processor. Memory DIMMs are mounted on the CPU card and can contain up to 32 GB of memory.

The Model 6C4 contains six bays. The four front-accessible, hot-swap capable bays can accommodate up to 587.2 GB of disk storage.

Other integrated features include:

Support of Logical Partitioning (LPAR) is available on the Models 6E4 and 6C4. LPAR enables you to split a Model 6E4 system into three LPARs and the Model 6C4 into as many as four LPARs. Each LPAR functions as a "computer within a computer" with its instance of the operating system.

The IBM eServer Cluster 1600 is enhanced to include the p630 server within the available cluster building blocks. This server is now available as both an initial option and a field addition to the IBM eServer Cluster 1600.

The IBM eServer pSeries delivers cluster-ready servers, which can scale up to 128 servers (p690, p680, p670, p660, and p630) and up to 128 operating system images.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Reliability, Fault Tolerance, and Data Integrity

Excellent quality and reliability features are the keys to all facets of IBM eServer pSeries products. The measures taken help ensure the products operate when required, perform reliably, efficiently handle infrequent failures in a nondisruptive fashion, and provide timely and competent repair to allow resumption of operations with minimal inconvenience.

Reliability begins with the development of architectures, where RAS innovations are of paramount importance. The reliability concept flows through design and product development stages, where RAS designs are reviewed, assessed, developed, evaluated, and optimized. It continues through the manufacturing and release processes, where the manufacturing quality is extensively measured and is under continual evaluation. It culminates in service and support, where:

IBM eServer pSeries 630 system processes, from the architectural and concept phases of development through the provision of service and support, are ISO certified and audited periodically for ISO compliance by representatives of Underwriters Laboratories.

RAS features such as ECC (error checking and correcting) on the L1 data cache and L2 data and directory caches can provide dynamic detection and correction of hard or soft array cell failures. Dynamic de- allocation functions include:

Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing capability are also provided by the AIX operating system.

The Journaled File System of the AIX operating system maintains file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.

PCI Extended Error Handling (EEH)

Dynamic Processor Deallocation


Note: Dynamic Processor Deallocation is effective on systems with two or more functional processors and with AIX 5L Version 5.2. AIX 5L Version 5.1 requires three or more functional processors in order to have the feature running properly.

Product positioning

Top rule

The IBM eServer pSeries 630 Models 6E4 and 6C4 are UNIX servers for customers looking for a cost-effective, high-performance UNIX server. These are customers who are attracted to the p660 but do not require the overall performance or scaling.

The Model 6C4 is an ideal replacement for the current successful Model B80. The Model 6E4 is an ideal replacement for the Model 270. Both systems use the POWER4 or POWER4+ technology, have four hot-swap PCI-X slots with the 1.0 GHz processor or six hot-swap PCI-X slots with the 1.2 or 1.45 GHz processors, four front accessible hot-swap disk bays, and can accommodate up to 32 GB of ECC memory. Two media bays are available for a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVDRAM, diskette, or tape drive. Integrated features include two 10/100 Ethernet ports, two Ultra3 SCSI (internal and external) ports, three serial, one parallel, two HMC, keyboard, and mouse ports.

Reliability improvements help make the Models 6E4 and 6C4 very competitive. Its CPU de-allocation function enables the system to detect failing processors and take them off-line without re-booting the system. The service processor can record this action and notify the system administrator or service personnel of the condition. Computing operation continues with the processor deactivated, allowing repair to be scheduled at a time convenient to your processing schedule. Hot-plug functionality of the PCI I/O subsystem is designed to bring new levels of up-time to your system for the replacement or addition of I/O adapters. Selective disablement of an adapter can be made as necessary while system operations not dependent on this adapter continue to run without being affected.

High availability continues to be an ongoing and growing need for customers. IBM continues its tradition of providing high-availability solutions with the Models 6E4 and 6C4, which can be ordered in a high- availability configuration with a choice of components.

Power Supply

Power Cord Specify

Power cord specify feature codes 98xx provide a power cord to power an external I/O device from a wall-type outlet. These do not work with the rack Power Distribution Unit (PDU). To plug the I/O device into a 7014-S00, T00 or T42 rack PDU, order #6095.

Power cord specify feature code 9911 is the standard IBM rack power cord which goes from the 6C4 to the PDU. Customers will receive #9911 if they do not specify a power cord. Power cord specify feature codes 9900-9909 are available to customers who want to plug the 6C4 into a regular wall-type outlet.

Redundant Power Supply/Redundant Cooling

Racks

The IBM 7014-T00 rack supports the pSeries 630 with DC power. In order to mount more than 4 pSeries 630 systems with DC power in a T00 rack, Feature Code #0986 must be specified so the configuration will receive special request services from the Center for Customized Solutions.

DC Powered pSeries 630 Model 6C4 systems are supported only in the 7014-T00 rack equipped with DC power distribution panel (#6117). The 7014-T00 rack power distribution panel (#6117) provides attachment for up to four 3-pin to 3-pin PDP power cables (#6285) and up to four 3-pin to 5-pin PDP power cables (#6286). This will allow a maximum of up to four 6C4s with redundant power or up to seven 6C4s without redundant power. Up to four 7133-D40 (SSA) or 2104-DU3 (SCSI) drawers, or any combination of SSA and SCSI drawers, can also be installed with the four redundant power 6C4s in the same 7014-T00 rack. DC 7133-D40 SSA or 2104-DU3 SCSI drawers are shipped automatically with the correct power cables.
Note: #6117 is a feature of the 7014-T00 rack.

Rack feature number 6117 provides the proper capacity circuit breakers for use with the pSeries 630 Model 6C4 system based on the inclusion of rack feature number 0206 (Rack Content Specify, 7028-6C4) on the 7014-T00 rack order.

Reliability, Availability, Serviceability (RAS)

Since the 7028-6E4 and 6C4 systems have an optional diskette drive (#2605) alternate methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available for use if the diskette drive is not ordered; an external internet connection must be available to maintain or update system firmware and microcode to the latest required level.

Hardware requirements


Note: IBM eServer pSeries 630 Express configurations are Linux ready.

Models 6E4 and 6C4 Minimum System Configuration

The Model 6E4 deskside/desktop and Model 6C4 rack-mounted server can be configured to incorporate up to two processors, 16 GB of system memory, four or six (with feature number 9556 or 6556) PCI adapters, and multiple media devices, as desired. This flexibility is available through the many optional features for the Models 6E4 and 6C4.

Each Model 6E4 and 6C4 must include:

pSeries 630 Model 6C4 HA Solution Configuration

The Model 6C4 HA solution package must include a minimum of the following hardware and software that must be ordered together as specified:

Two Model 6C4 servers each incorporating:


Note: Additional optional 7133-D40 features can be added.

Software requirements

If installing AIX on the system

If Installing Linux on the System


Note: Not all model 6C4 system features available on the AIX operating system are available on the LInux Operating systems.

(#2498) PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 12, 2003)

The RS/6000 PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter(#2498) is a non- bootable high performance Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,1,1E, 5, or 5E capability and can address up to sixty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on four independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 128 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 128 MByte fast-write cache is a resident feature of the PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter that utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter failure, a replacement PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter to help ensure data integrity. The 128 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter has four independent Ultra3 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and four external ports. The two internal ports are shared with two of the external ports. Two of the four busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The other two busses only drive external ports. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on supporting RS/6000 systems. Systems with one or two internal 6-pack disks can attach to a PCI 4-Channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID Adapter. The four external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The four external ports also provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate.

Limitations:

In order for full support and to take full advantage of the Ultra3 (up to 160 MBytes/s) speed of this adapter, the proper AIX level also needs to be considered. AIX 4.3.3 with appropriate APAR updates or later AIX versions support the full range of SCSI bus data rates (including Ultra3 SCSI up to 160 MByte/s). Check the AIX level your system has or is able to support.

(#5703) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter (#5703) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt, bootable high performance Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0,5, or 10 capability and can address up to thirty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on two independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 40 MByte fast-write cache is provided as a resident part of this adapter. The 40 MByte fast-write cache is resident on the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and utilizes non-volatile RAM. The 40 MByte fast-write cache can provide an significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has two independent ultra320 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and two external ports. The two internal ports are shared with the two external ports. The SCSI busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on certain supporting pSeries systems with internal multiple disk drives or packs of drives. Internally attached Ultra320 devices are designed to run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

When an array configuration is selected with the RAID Manager, the disk drives being designated as part of the array (attached to either the internal or external ports) are required to be formatted to 522 byte sectors. 522 byte sectors provide additional CRC error checking for improved data integrety. A menu option is provided in the AIX supporting software which will reformat these disk drives prior to their usage in an array. Conversely, when a disk drive is removed from an array, a similar menu option is also provided to re-format them back to 512 byte sectors.
Note: Some disk drives require that their microcode be updated to the latest level before being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors.

Also, there are some disk drives which do not support being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors. The PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager will inform the user of these known situations when they exist. For disk microcode updates, go to the following Web page URL:

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/server/mdownload/

Two industry standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DS4 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TS4 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 320 MB/s SCSI bus data rate configured as either a non-array or an array of disks. Also the two external ports provide non-array connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

The adapter interfaces to the system via a PCI or PCI-X bus and connects to a network using a 4-pair CAT-5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable for distances of up to 100m. AIX Network Install Manager (NIM) boot capability is supported with this adapter. The adapter conforms to the IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T standard. The adapter also supports jumbo frames when running at the 1000 Mbps speed.

A function called 'Large Send' or sometimes known as TCP Segmentation is also provided by this adapter. This function offloads the TCP segmentation operation from the AIX IP layer to the adapter for outgoing (transmit side) TCP segments. Another function known as "Checksum Offload" which offloads the TCP/UDP Checksum Operation or workload from the CPU to the adapter is also provided.

The IBM 2-Port 10/100/1000 Base-TX Ethernet PCI-X Adapter (#5706) should be considered where maximum port density is required per I/O card slot. For a suggested maximum number of adapters taking performance into consideration, refer to the RS/6000 & pSeries PCI Adapter Placement Reference SA38-0538. If card slots are not the limiting factor and maximum throughput is required, the single port IBM 10/100/1000 Base-TX Ethernet PCI-X Adapter (#5701) is the preferred solution. Note: For optimum performance, the adapter should be placed in a 64 bit PCI-X card slot whenever possible.

Limitations: The 1000 Mbps speed is not supported in Half-Duplex (HDX) mode.


Note: For optimum 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X Adapter performance, systems manufactured prior to December 6, 2002 may require a system firmware update. Check the following Web URL after December 6, 2002 to review and download latest firmware if needed.

(#5712) PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5712) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.), up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI adapter (160 MBps). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external. Internally attached Ultra320 devices can run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this 320 MB per second performance, all attaching devices should also be Ultra320 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface to all devices on that SCSI bus at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two industry standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE devices or subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter.

The two external ports provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DS4 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TS4 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 320 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. The two external ports also provide connectivity to an IBM 2104-DU3 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TU3 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 160 MB/s SCSI bus data rate and to an IBM 2104-DL1 Expandable Storage Plus Drawer or 2104-TL1 Expandable Storage Plus Tower at up to 80 MB/s SCSI bus data rate. Also the two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5712) is a native boot adapter with AIX 5.1 or AIX 5.2 software in a supported pSeries or RS/6000 systems. The adapter also supports target mode.

(#5736) PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of July 11, 2014)

The PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter (#5736) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses), each capable of running 320 MBps (max.). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external. Internally attached Ultra320 devices are designed to run at a data rate of up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers.

The two external ports provide connectivity to numerous other SCSI external subsystems. Check the external subsystem sales/Web pages for verification of connectivity support with this adapter.

Limitations:

Even though the Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI nonRAID Adapter has ports that run at ultra320 SCSI speeds (up to 320 MBytes/s), the internally attached disk drives will run at a maximum SCSI bus data rate specified by that supporting system disk backplane.

(#5737) PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter

(No Longer Available as of August 28, 2009)

The PCI-X DDR Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID LVD only Adapter (#5737) is a 64-bit 3.3 volt, bootable high performance Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter providing RAID 0, 5, 6, or 10 capability, and can address up to thirty 16-bit SCSI physical disk drives on two independent SCSI buses.

To increase the data writing performance, a 90 MByte non-volatile fast-write cache is a resident part of this adapter. The 90 MByte fast-write cache can provide a significant improvement in data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SCSI RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters.

The Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter has two independent ultra320 SCSI buses. There are two internal ports and two external ports. The two internal ports are shared with the two external ports. The SCSI busses can drive either an internal port or an external port. The internal ports can be used to provide an internal RAID solution on certain supporting pSeries systems with internal multiple disk drives or packs of drives. Internally attached Ultra320 devices designed to run at 320 MB can run up to 320 MB per second on systems that have internal backplanes that are capable of supporting Ultra320 speeds.

In order to achieve an Ultra320 SCSI bus data rate of up to 320 MB per second and maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. All attaching devices should be Ultra320 LVD devices to utilize the 320 MB per second performance, however, if Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. This card does not support single-ended (SE) devices.

When an array configuration is selected with the RAID Manager, the disk drives being designated as part of the array (attached to either the internal or the external ports) are required to be formatted to 522-byte sectors. 522-byte sectors provide additional CRC error checking for improved data integrity. A menu option provide in the AIX supporting software, which will reformat these disk drives prior to their usage in an array. Conversely, when a disk drive is removed from an array, a similar menu option is also provided to re-format them back to 512-byte sectors. Note: Some disk drives require that their microcode be updated to the latest level before being formatted to 522 Byte Sectors. In addition, there are some disk drives, which do not support 522 Byte Sectors format. The PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager will inform the user of these known situations when they exist. For disk microcode updates, go to the following Web page URL:

(#6203) PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter

(No Longer Available as of December 12, 2003)

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) is a 64-bit adapter and is an excellent solution for high-performance SCSI applications. The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter provides two SCSI channels (busses). Each SCSI bus can either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI device or backplane attachments) or external and will support a data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second, up to twice the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Dual Channel Ultra2 SCSI adapter (80 MBytes per second).

In order to achieve an Ultra3 SCSI bus data rate of up to 160 MBytes per second and also maintain a reasonable drive distance, the adapter utilizes Low Voltage Differential (LVD) drivers and receivers. To fully utilize this Ultra3 160 MBytes per second performance, all attaching devices or subsystems should also be Ultra3 LVD devices. But, if Ultra2 and Ultra3 devices coexist on the same bus, each device will operate at its rated speed. For lower speed single-ended (SE) devices, the SCSI bus will switch to single-ended (SE) performance and interface at the lower SE bus data rate of the device.

Two industry-standard VHDCI 68-pin connectors are mounted on the adapter's end bracket allowing attachment of various LVD and SE external subsystems. A .3 meter converter cable, VHDCI to P, Mini-68 pin to 68-pin, (#2118) can be used with older external SE subsystems to allow connection to the VHDCI connector on the PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter.
Note: If any Single Ended (SE) SCSI subsystem is attached to an external port of this adapter, the SCSI port will auto-throttle to a "Fast" interface speed running no faster than 20MB/s maximum. This auto- throttle function is performed to ensure best signal quality between host adapter and attaching subsystem. The second external port is unaffected unless a SE subsystem is also attached to it. If so, it would also auto- throttle as described above.

The PCI Dual Channel Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#6203) also is a native boot adapter with AIX 4.3.3 or AIX 5.1 (with appropriate updates) in the supported pSeries or RS/6000 systems.

(#6230) Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230) is a 4 port (2 loop) Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) adapter providing an instantaneous data transfer rate of up to 160 MByte/s per loop. It also provides eight- initiator, non-RAID capability, two-initiator RAID 1, two-initiator RAID 0 + 1, two-initiator RAID 5, or one-initiator RAID 0 capability. The adapter accepts a 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) that improves write performance in RAID 0+1, RAID 5, and non-RAID applications. When the 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card is used, the adapter can be configured in either single or dual initiator fast- write cache mode. In dual initiator fast-write cache mode, if one of the two adapters fail, the failing adapter is designed to transfer control over to the other. Also, in dual initiator Fast Write Cache mode, the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is available and required to utilize the full 32 MBytes of fast-write cache on the adapters. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card is not used in dual initiator fast-write cache mode, the effective fast-write cache capacity will be 16 MBytes on each adapter. See the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) for information.

The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter when operated in a RAID 5 configuration will support (2+P) to (15+P) arrays and up to 6 (15+P) arrays. When operated in a RAID 1 or RAID 0+1 configuration, will support up to eight disk drives mirrored. The adapter also supports Hot Spares in RAID 5 and RAID 0+1 mode. The Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter also supports connectivity to external disk enclosures and internal RS/6000 SSA configurations. Optional SSA Fiber-Optic Extender is also supported (Refer to IBM 7133 Sales literature for additional information)

Any supported RS/6000 system can be set up to boot from an Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230), provided a non-RAID SSA disk is included as part of the configuration. Other disks associated with the adapter can be RAID but at least one disk must be a non-RAID SSA disk. The non-RAID SSA disk can be located under the covers of a processor unit or in an external SSA storage unit. If your system is running with AIX 4.3.3 or later software, native boot capability is supported. For factory system orders with AIX preload requested, an internal SCSI disk drive will be preloaded as the native boot disk even if internal SSA disk drive(s) are present. If your system is running with AIX 4.2.1 or AIX 4.3.2 software, the below procedure applies in order to boot using the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter:

After October 3, 2000, a 3-Way Copy Function will be available. This 3-Way Copy Function allows a user to create a third copy to an existing RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array while mirrored operation continues. 3-Way Copy allows the user, at any time after the copy process has completed, to split the third copy off from the original RAID-1 or RAID 0+1 array to form an independent RAID copy. This third copy or "snapshot" copy could be typically used to perform a backup or to test some new application. The 3-Way Copy Function is available only via a code download and can only be gained by going to the SSA web support pages defined below.

When performing SSA device or subsystem planning, installation, upgrades, or preventive maintenance, refer to the following Web support pages. They provide access to the latest SSA publications and support code for the system, SSA adapters, and SSA subsystems. These sites should also be considered during system hardware and/or operating system upgrades if SSA devices are included in the system.

The above link contains lists of the latest SSA support code and provides code download capability for the RS/6000 and AIX environments.

LIMITATION: Internal ports on the adapter are not supported. See machine/model specific information to determine if internal SSA disk drives and associated hardware/cables are supported.

(#6231) 128 MByte DRAM Option Card

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is a field only optional feature to the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or a factory or field option for the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (#6230). This option is recommended for dual initiator fail-over Fast Write Cache (FWC) configurations. The option increases the existing DRAM on the adapter to 128 MBytes. In this type of dual initiator FWC configuration, the existing DRAM does not have enough capacity to completely contain a copy of each adapter's 32 MByte FWC and also provide additional working space. The 128 MByte DRAM Option Card provides this additional space needed to contain a full copy of each adapters 32 MByte FWC content and allows for full 32 MByte fail-over protection. If the 128 MByte DRAM Option Card (#6231) is not used with dual-initiator FWC configurations, the effective FWC capacity is reduced to 16 MBytes per adapter.

If this feature is ordered as a field upgrade to an existing SerialRAID adapter (#6225 or 6230), a CD-ROM with appropriate software and publications are also provided.

(#6235) 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card

(No Longer Available as of June 24, 2005)

The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card (#6235) is a 32 MByte fast- write optional feature that plugs into the IBM RS/6000 Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (#6225) or the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter Plus (#6230). It utilizes non-volatile RAM. During the unlikely event of an Advanced SerialRAID Adapter failure, a replacement Advanced SerialRAID Adapter can be installed and the fast-write cache can be removed from the failing adapter and installed in the new adapter insuring data integrity. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card can provide a significant improvement of data throughput and response time during certain sequence write operations compared to SSA RAID adapters without the fast-write cache. The response time and data transfer improvement using the optional card will vary depending upon the data block sizes, the percentage of sequential writes, machine type/model, and application parameters. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Adapter (# 6225) will operate in either non-RAID or RAID 5 mode, in single-initiator configurations. The 32 MByte Fast-Write Cache Option Card plugged into the Advanced SerialRAID Plus Adapter (# 6230) will operate in non-RAID, RAID 5, or RAID 0+1 mode, in single- initiator or dual initiator configurations.
